Pros

Heroic brands. Good work-life balance. Good family values. Strong distribution system.

Cons

Analysis paralysis. Very frugal. Major operations are based out of a nice, but small town.

    Runs on Politics, Popularity, and Favoritism

    Pros

    Onboarding was okay. Since they're such a large company, they know what you need to be trained on.

    Cons

    Promotions are based off of popularity over merit. If you're not someone's favorite person, don't expect to get invited to anything from meetings to lunches. Compensation is below other CPG companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing politics. You wont be able to retain any or your top talent if you continue.

    Mill was closed

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Everett, WA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Everett, WA

    I worked at Kimberly-Clark full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The 12 hr shifts could be grueling. However the days off were nice to allow for good family time. Coworkers became an extended family.

    Cons

    Medical and dental left a lot to be desired. Some management that would come in had no knowledge of the job at hand. Rarely did you see management on the production floor. Sick leave was not heard of. Even if you were admitted to a hospital, a Dr. Note did not constitute as a excused absence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To a bare minimum, management should atleast step foot on the production floor to gain understanding into what the employees jobs consist of. It would have been nice to have positive feedback on occasion. However, it was always negative. That does nothing to morale. In fact it has the opposite result. The mill closure was under a dark vail that seemed to be miss-truths. Why close a mill that was making money? Management should have an ounce of being a people person. This was extremely rare. I worked for this company for 20+ yrs and it was probably the best hint to happen to me, in regards to the mill closure.
